Memoirs of a Wilderness Dog
About the Book
Canada’s most opinionated dog is reunited with her adoring readers in this handsome tenth-anniversary edition of TouchWood Editions’ bestselling title.
It was ten years ago that this charming book first stole the hearts of dog lovers everywhere. Written from the point of view of Lonesome, a lovable dog of great intellect and character, Lonesome regales the reader with tales and observations of life in the wild.
Named after the remote Lonesome Lake in British Columbia’s Tweedsmuir Park, Lonesome was a first-rate companion to her human—obedient, mannerly, and brave, yet occasionally cynical—although she did not share her human’s love of the wilderness and would have preferred life in the suburbs.
Following in the tradition of classics like Old Yeller and The Incredible Journey, Lonesome’s charming, humorous, and utterly engaging memoir embodies the undeniable love and inevitable differences between a special dog and her human companion.
With over 20,000 copies sold, TouchWood Editions is introducing this new anniversary edition so that Lonesome’s story can be enjoyed by a new generation of readers.
